Anti-gun Democrat Minority Leader Sen. Charles Schumer wants Democrats to stay away from the gun issue as mid-terms loom. (Screen capture, YouTube, ABC News)
The Hill is reporting that Senate Democrat Leader Charles Schumer is counseling fellow Democrats to stay away from the gun issue.
That may come as a surprise from the man on Capitol Hill who has made a career of pushing gun control. His party has come to be known as “the party of gun control.” The article spells out Schumer’s motivation:
“In next year’s midterms, however, Democrats will be defending 10 seats in states won by Trump in last year’s election — including West Virginia, Montana and North Dakota, where guns are a big part of the local culture.
“Schumer’s strategy is based, at least in part, on saving those seats and potentially winning back the Senate majority next year if Republicans falter badly.”post was originally published on this site
